Baptism & Chrismation

The first sacrament is baptism, which is the Christian rite of initiation into the Church. Chrismation is the second sacrament which bestows upon us the Holy Spirit.


Holy Communion & Confession

Holy Communion is the sacrament of receiving the resurrected body and blood of Jesus Christ. Although all Orthodox Christians are to confess their sins daily to God privately, all are encouraged to participate in the sacrament of Confession with a priest.

Marriage

Marriage is a sacrament of the Church, for it is Christ himself through the priest or bishop that joins the couple together.
